How Novomix Suspension for Injection works

Novomix 50 100IU/ml Penfill is a combination of two insulin preparations: Insulin aspart and insulin aspart protamine. Insulin aspart has a fast onset of action while insulin aspart protamine has a prolonged duration of action. Together, they ensure rapid and consistent sugar control by facilitating reuptake of sugar in muscle and fat cells, and suppressing the production of sugar in the liver.

Expert Advice

  • Novomix 50 100IU/ml Penfill helps to control blood sugar level and avoid long-term complications of high sugar level on your organs and blood vessels.
  • You should continue to exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet, and take your other diabetes medicines along with taking Novomix 50 100IU/ml Penfill.
  • Take it 15 minutes before a meal or within 20 minutes after starting a meal.
  • Injection below the skin of the abdomen results in faster absorption as compared to other injection sites such as skin of the upper arms, thighs, or buttocks. After injection, the site of injection should not be massaged.
  • Injection sites must be rotated to prevent hard lumps from developing at one site. 
  • Change to another type or brand of insulin should be done under strict medical supervision as it may require a change in dosage.
  • Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar level) may occur when taken along with other antidiabetic medicines, alcohol or on delaying/skipping a meal. Carry a sugar source with you for immediate relief.
  • Opened vials / cartridges stay good at room temperature for up to 4 weeks, while unopened vials must be placed in the refrigerator (2°C–8°C).
  • Do not share your insulin device with other people, even if the needle has been changed. You may give other people a serious infection or get a serious infection from them.
  • It can be used even if you have liver or kidney problems, unlike many other blood sugar-lowering medicines.

Greetings Respected Doctors I am a Male, Age: 39 Diagnosed for type 2 diabetics, 3 years ago Height: 5?3 Weight 72kgs BMI: 28.9 Have been through various oral diabetic medication but not successful in bring the sugar number to the normal ranges (off and on yes) I was prescribed ?Novomix 30? pre breakfast and pre dinner (30 units) after daily checking of sugar level at home on daily basis, I feel that this combination is not working for me. I have asked my doctor to change my insulin regime to MDI as I have been diagnosed at 37years, I wanted to cut oral meds and go on the insulin therapy as for the long run and give me a tight control over my sugar levels. (The doctor said no and has given me very expensive tablets) In my profession as a stock broker I have to be seated almost 90% of my work time. I am a pre vegetarian, take low card food and have an hour of walking in the mornings. I followed the pattern of insulin regime what my cousin does, tried ?novo rapid? pre meals and ?Lantus? at bed time. Had good results and control. My HB1ac from 11.6 dropped to 9.2 in 2 months My question to experts 1. Is it safe too continue this MDI because I don?t want to continue tablets. 2. Due to ?high cost? reasons what are the substitutes that I use instead of Lantus and novorapid. 3. Heard about ?Actrapid HM? can it be substituted for ?Novorapid? Kindly let me know the options (I have explained to my doctor about my concerns and he does not want to take cognizance of my issues) PATIENT (Chennai)
